Ellen Urges Unity Among Liberians
By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, March 10 (LINA) -President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has called on Liberians to unite to develop their country for the betterment of the citizenry.

The Liberian Leader made the call Wednesday when she laid wreaths on the mass grave of the late President William R. Tolbert and others who were buried with him on April 22, 1980 at the Palm Grove Cemetery on Center Street in central Monrovia as part of the National Decoration Day.

She noted that "God has strengthened the hearts of relatives of those who were killed that fateful day to continue to forgive each other for the good of Liberia."

President Sirleaf said Decoration Day brings about sad memories to many who lost their loved ones, but insisted that Liberians should foster unity among themselves to ensure lasting peace which, she noted, has eluded the country over the years.

The Chief Executive challenged Liberians to be their brothers’ keepers and unite the nation to foster peace and development in memory of those who contributed tremendously towards the socio-economic development of the country.

President Sirleaf emphasized that Liberians should come together to contribute to global peace and security within the comity of nations again as they did in the past.
